Gift in wills

After providing for your loved ones, perhaps you might also like to consider leaving a gift in your will to Mental Health Resource.

Leaving a gift in your will to our charity will help us continue to provide safe spaces and person-centred mental health support in our community, so we can work towards our vision: improved mental wellbeing for everyone in our community.

We have listed a few key points below about leaving a gift in your will. However, for specific advice on your circumstances, we recommend that you speak to your solicitor.

What kind of gift can you leave.

  • A share of your estate (which can be anything from 1-100%). This can be a percentage of what is left over once loved ones are provided for or it can be any percentage you like.
  • A specific sum of money (which can be any sum of money that’s suitable for you). This will give absolute certainty as to how much the charity will receive after your death.
  • Specific item of value which could be sold to support our work.

Gifts to charity. 

  • Gifts to charity are paid free of Inheritance Tax and are taken out of your estate before any tax is calculated. 
  • Gifts to charity can reduce your inheritance rate if 10% or more of your estate is left to charity.

For specific advice on your circumstances, we recommend that you speak to your solicitor.

Creating a new will.

We recommend that you should talk to a solicitor when you make a will, to make sure your wishes are carried out exactly as you’d like. You should also appoint an executor – someone who is responsible for administering your estate.

Changing or updating an existing will.

If you already have a will, you can simply update it by adding some special wording to your will. This is called a codicil. It’s a good idea to review your will when circumstances change to check that it still reflects your wishes.
